Downtown Street Banners Call for Artwork

Want to design a downtown Vancouver street banner?

To ensure downtown Vancouver has a distinctive sense of place, the DVBIA collaborates with local organizations, community groups and creative individuals to help enhance and beautify its public realm. As part of our mandate, the DVBIA strives to promote the identity of various streets and districts by installing street banners on light poles, which are changed every two years.

This year, Granville Street and West Hastings Street will be receiving new banners, and the DVBIA is asking for local artists and designers to submit their designs to be featured.

The Process

Applicants can submit for one or both streets, and the design should, in some way, capture the character of the street. The selected design will be displayed until 2022, with an award of $1,500 for winning submissions.
